On January 31, Rockstar Games posted an article on their newswire announcing a release date for GTAV.
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013. We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require. To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September – we thank you for your support and patience.
Yours,The GTA Team"
So the game has been delayed by about 4 months for "a little more polish". There is no doubt that they are going to exceed our expectations with what they are going to do with this game. Let's hope September comes very very fast.
